Resolve to stay connected with SNPA
As we begin a new year, the SNPA staff wishes each of our members a prosperous New Year!
We look forward to talking with you:
- In person at SNPA events.
- Online at SNPA.org, through our Facebook page, through our LinkedIn group (Southern Newspaper Publishers Association) and Twitter (@CindyDurhamSNPA).
- And, hope you will call on us throughout the year: (404) 256-0444.
SNPA President Tom Silvestri is encouraging all members to spend 10 minutes a day with SNPA. Here are some suggestions for 2014:
- Make a phone call to a fellow SNPA member or to an SNPA staff member. SNPA is the premier networking opportunity for publishers and executives from daily and non-daily newspapers and the companies that do business with newspapers. Resolve to stay connected this year!
- Meet us in Las Vegas for the Key Executives Mega-Conference.
- Plan to attend the News Industry Summit, Oct. 6-8 in Charlottesville, Va.
- Come to Galveston, Sept. 14-16 for the Carmage Walls Leadership Forum – specially designed for smaller-circulation newspapers.
- Read the eBulletin every Thursday afternoon to stay up-to-date on SNPA and industry news. And send us your news for the eBulletin!
- Join the SNPA committee of your choice.
- Take part in a webinar. For just $35, you can let a roomful of staff members receive the low-cost, highly-effective training that they need.
- Share your GREAT IDEAS with SNPA. And, make money from the ideas shared by other members.
- Take part in the SNPA salary survey. Questionnaires will be available in mid-January.
- Enter an SNPA contest – recognize the great work your staff is doing; prizes are an added bonus! Contests in 2014 will include: Photo Contest, Carmage Walls Commentary Prize, Print Quality Contest and more.
How will you connect today?
Topics on Monday included developing new print circulation, digital development, best approaches to competition, personnel (finding, recruiting, training and managing) and managing your staff (dealing with strife, reviews, reprimands and terminations). On Tuesday, the agenda will focus on content, niches and how the world sees us (and what to do about it).
Future eBulletins will examine some of the ideas that came out of this meeting, beginning with a look at how one company evaluates editorial excellence produced by its newsrooms.
Special thanks to Dolph Tillotson, president of Southern Newspapers, Inc., for moderating the Forum.
